  • a A complete list of the differentially expressed genes, including unknown ESTs, can be found on our web site (

  • b The average of ratios in comparison between WT+MYC and WT cells during log-phase growth. Values of more than 1 represent c-Myc up-regulated genes. Values of less than 1 represent the c-Myc down-regulated genes.

  • c Genes present in Tables 1 <$REFLINK> and 2 <$REFLINK> .

  • d Gene reported previously to be a Myc target.
